Tea Party concerned about that?
They claimed to hear racist screams at them when walking across the street (normally they use underground passage to go to vote) and immediately all the press was reporting it, yet not a single video camera, including the ones walking with that bunch of liars, captured a single such incident. In fact you could only hear the chant, "Kill the Bill".
I find much of the Tea Party membership to be riding on a current of emotional dissatisfaction more than any real insight of what the actual issues are.
That being said... the recent decisions made in the legal arena regarding the church groups that like to picket soldiers funerals pretty much opens up the public soap box to anyone making any claim in any situation just as long as they don't claim a false identity. Consequently, standing in the middle of a tea party crowd and quaking like a duck, or claiming that Obama is from Uranus... is a constitutionally protected activity.
Some of the Tea Party concerns and claims are very real. Many of their claims are so much exaggerations and disinformation. Lies are in the eye of the beholder. Many of the Tea Party crowd make claims that could be characterized as lies too. I am inclined to give them the benefit though, and just right them off as enthusiastically, and willingly misinformed.
........ Jason Levine is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Any capable leader does advertise "covert operations". His choosing to make such an announcement is beyond comprehension.
What he has done is give the tea party an opening to claim "infiltration" is any of the legistimate members say or do something racist, homophobic, etc.
Shame on him!
Of course, it now behooves the party to immediately condemn any legitimate member who would happen to speak or act inappropriately.
